Notes on theory

by Nene

I’m pressed for time so really can’t get into this now, but briefly want to that say:

Mirchandani blew my mind. I want more of this empirical postmodernism, and the theoretical framework that allows for us to return to the Enlightenment project of modernity with new tools. It’s like Habermas but without sticking your head in the sand.

Althusser is taking forever to say something, but fortunately he’s clear and not difficult to follow. I think that his elaborations on Marx are warranted, but part of me thinks he should have had the nerve to admit that it was an extension and not just what Marx had in his head but said obliquely. Althusser is the Kabbala of Marxism.
